DO YOU WANT A CONCERT HALL, JAZZ CLUB, POP CONCERT, SURROUND OR EVERYTHING?

Many halls (theatres, concert halls, auditoria etc.) are designed for one specific purpose, for example drama, musical, opera, symphony orchestra etc. The acoustic requirements for all these purposes are (very) different, to a large extent even contradictory. As a consequence a hall can only be suited for a wide range of programming if the acoustic for each performance type is fully adjustable (active variable acoustics).

With SIAP you can turn every venue into a Concert Hall, Opera House,Jazz Club, Cathedral or Congress Hall…

Theatres are generally built with a short reverberation time, since this is required for good speech intelligibility and is the optimum for amplified sound. Many venues are made as acoustically “dry” as possible because most performances are fully amplified. For reinforced sound a reverberation time somewhere between 0.7 and 1.2 second is ideal. Many elements in a theatre determine the acoustic. Walls and seats can for example provide plenty of absorption and non-parallel walls are an effective means against flutter echos and other undesirable reflections. In addition to the reverberation time there are of course numerous other acoustic parameters which influence the acoustic quality and sound of a theatre auditorium. Donec elementum pellentesque.

The characteristic acoustics of churches can be very beautiful and desirable, on the other hand, it may have a disadvantage with speech (speech intelligibility). The origin of the churches has led to great musical compositions for organ and singing, among other things, in recent centuries.

Church and music are, as it were, ‘fertilized’. Over time, there are many churches that no longer have the desired acoustics. Often this has to do with building history (such as repair of war damage / alterations by changing use) and the acoustics of these (sometimes ancient churches) have unfortunately been lost in part. For speech, this may be beneficial for music that needs spaciousness it won’t work..

The success of a studio depends largely on a good (recording) acoustic. A variety of starting pints and possibilities are available to achieve this. For control rooms the “live end – dead end” principle is often applied of the acoustic. The dead-end side of the room serves monitor loudspeakers which have to be able to reproduce an uncoloured sound and with correct source localizations. The live-end side of the room is beneficial for artists who are making music there. Similarly this live-end environment provides supporting ambience to the sound engineer who is giving the recording a beautiful sound. Other design principles for a wide range of applications are of course also used. SIAP can provide a useful acoustic completion. Donec elementum pellentesque.

Suitable For Unamplified Music.

Add the natural early and late reflections to the direct sound to give the audience and the musicians the joyfull experience the way it should.

Suitable For Amplified Music.

Add the proper ambiance to the room to give it a more lively feel, or combine the FoH installation with the SIAP system for optimum results.  

Suitable For 3D Surround.

Create a surround matrix with multi in and outputs. Create a configuration for a show or musical and save it. Incorporate SIAP in an existing environment with surround.

How does it work?

A small number of microphones (usually four) high above the front of the stage capture the sound. Feed the stage sound of the performers, orchestra, choir etc. with all of its information such as source location(s) and their tonal quality to the SIAP acoustic processor.

The SIAP processor is a very powerful sound processing “system”. In this the sound is treated with appropriate time delays, filters and reverberation fine-structure based on the desired acoustic. For this purpose the processor comprises a large number channels.

The SIAP system is very user friendly. No specialist knowledge needs to be at hand to operate the SIAP system. Simply choose between the acoustic presets (even wireless) on the touch screen. Changing between (movie) surround presets and users presets are just as easily.

The output from the processor generates a “sound blanket” that covers the entire room (and orchestra pit and /or stage). This sound field, that is exactly the same as the reverberation time and corresponding nuances, forms the optimum acoustic together with the hall itself.
